I'm so exhausted right now! I just want to sleep, sleep sleep and more sleep. Last night i had a five hour photo shoot. It was an out door wedding and so freakin humid. Plus it rained and it made it worse. Angela seems to be keeping faith in me, even though i disappointed her a couple of weddings ago (flash problems, plus being sick ). I think i did a pretty good job, some of them were so-so but hey as she says "I'm still learning" lol or at least that is what she says.

Sure I'm learning, but I know I'm a good photographer, but I'm not sure if i want to be stuck as her assistant for the rest of my life. especially since I'm not sure what my job in titles. On some weddings I'm an assistant, and some I'm more of a 2nd shooter. And sometimes and most of the time I'm both. And what sucks is I'm only being paid 10 dollars an hour. And i have to travel and hour one way to every wedding I shoot! So the money i make is enough to cover gas!!!

On a sadder note, hubby lost his job again, the bought a pneumonia he had, made him miss one day, and because he was in a union shop and still under review he lost his job. This really sucks, we thought things were going well for us, this job was close to home and good pay. So, now we are trying to figure out how to pay our bills, and keep gas in our car with out being homeless! It just seems we always have bad luck! Which, this could be part of my exhaustion, just the general stress in life.

There has been so much more going on in my life, but that has been the brunt of it!
